Integration of the aforementioned topics in mechatronics curriculum requires that the discipline broaden its base beyond mechanical and electrical engineering to include computer science. Many real-world applications involving IoT, robotics, machine vision, etc., are going to hasten this reshaping of mechatronics curricula. Exciting times ahead.
